What Happens When the Rapture Comes?


Dear Brother Ron

What happens when the rapture comes? Will people fall off into outer space? Will there be anybody left on the Earth? And if there will be people left on the Earth, how do we know the Rapture hasn't already happened?

Loose Change

Dear Loose Change

The rapture happens every day. When you die, the material world has ended for you. Jesus said, "If I go to prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you". The church interpreted that to mean He would come for every- body on the same day. This is incorrect.

The only time Jesus ever told anybody they were going to heaven was the thief on the cross beside Him. He did not say, "You are going to die but I will come back for you in two thousand years or so". He said, "This day you will be with me in Paradise". I believe Jesus meant what He said and said what He meant.

Have you ever attended a funeral and heard the minister say something like, "I know grandpa is looking down on us from heaven today"? Was the min- ister lying to soothe the bereaved or was he telling the truth? I believe he was telling the truth.

When you die, the world will keep spinning like it has for the past thirteen billion years or so. And you will be safe in the arms of our Father.

Best always
Brother Ron
